  • This book delivers on its premise and then some! This novel about a creepy school and a deadly game gone wrong is both compelling and beautifully written and infused with a simmering tension - I couldn't stop turning the pages!

    Sarah Pearse, author of The Sanatorium
  • The Hiding Place by Simon Lelic totally ruined by evenings! A taut pacy murder mystery that just won't stop turning pages. Lelic manages to combine Golden age whodunnit charm with a hypnotic mystery. The thinking reader's writer Lelic never disappoints and this one is the best yet

    Imran Mahmood, author of You Don't Know Me
  • Another totally thrilling page-turner. Masterful writing about teenage insecurity again, with a plot that twists and turns in to such a dramatic conclusion. Also so filmic, I could see every scene - surely has to be adapted!

    Araminta Hall, author of Hidden Depths
  • Lelic's best yet. As beautifully crafted as ever, and builds layer upon layer of tension

    Cara Hunter, author of The Whole Truth
  • Dual timelines unravel the truth behind a deadly game in a sinister boarding school & the present day hunt for a killer. Tense, full of misdirection & beautifully written

    Gilly Macmillan, author of The Nanny
  • I finished reading The Hiding Place by Simon Lelic yesterday. It opens with a chilling first page and the tone is set for a dark and disturbing thriller right up to the heart-stopping finale. A must read
